It wasn’t too long ago that we discussed Morrison’s sustainable waste clearance and management policies, but we think they’re impressive enough to be discussed on this list as well. Recently, the popular supermarket announced plans to completely ditch single use plastics on all of its fresh fruit and vegetable products, replacing them with sustainable recyclable alternatives. The measure looks set to save somewhere around 150 million plastic bags each year.
But that’s not all that Morrison’s are up to. As well as this, they’re also offering extra loyalty card points for customers that bring along plastic containers to the fresh food counter, as well as vowing that all of their own brand packaging will be completely free of single use plastics by 2025.
If you pop into a Morrison’s café, you’ll find that all their plastic straws have now been replaced by recyclable alternatives, and if you’re particularly beady eyed, you might spot a recycling point outside the store on your way out.
Plenty of businesses around the country have adopted sustainable practices like this, and if you want to support them, it’s definitely worth looking out for these small things that make a big difference when you head on over to the supermarket, coffee shop or pub.
